Ffyona Campbell

The Beat of a Different Drum

Hay Festival 1995, 
On 2nd April 1991, 24 year-old Ffyona Campbell waved goodbye to the chearing crowds in Cape Town and started walking north. Ahead lay 10,000 miles of some of the harshest, loneliest, most inhospitable wilderness on earth.
The Beat of a Different Drum is her gripping account of her extraordinary journey. Illustrated with breathtaking photos of Africa at it's most awesome, it is a story of high adventure, personal discovery and deep concern for the continent and people of Africa.
